    Sakai Takayuki 45-Layer Damascus Hammered WA Chef Knife(Gyuto) 210mm

    Posted by John on 5th Jun 2018

    A totally amazing knife, best I have ever used, makes slicing and dicing a absolute pleasure, I now find myself chopping vegetables up into small pieces because it is such a enjoyable thing to do now, wish I had upgraded years ago

    Great knife!

    Posted by S. Spirek on 2nd Feb 2018

    This is a really good knife, especially for the price!

    It took a little under 2 weeks for mine to arrive after I had ordered it, customs and everything included. It was packaged safely and handled well during transport, so it arrived in very good condition.

    The knife itself was perfectly sharp right out of the box. I've used it several times so far to cut both meat and vegetables, and it handles really well when used with a pinch grip. Finally, on top of being great to use, it's also a real looker.

    All in all, I would definitely recommend this knife.

    Great knife. This is about as good as Japanese style chef knives come at this price point, and I don't see what a higher priced knife can bring that this one cant. The handle is ambidextrous, the blade is gorgeous and holds its edge well. Recommend that you learn to use a whetstone to maintain this blade.

    I recently purchased the Sakai Takayuki 210mm gyuto 45 layer Damascus and am very impressed as I am a chef and use it every day since I purchased it 3 weeks ago I've only put it on a 8000 wet stone once to keep the edge sharp, would recommend this knife to anyone working in the industry,and the price was good and shipping very quick from Japan to Australia.




  • Great Knife... Hocho is Execellent Company!

    Product: Shikisai MIYAKO 33 Layer Damascus Deba Knife

    No doubt that Honcho sells fine tools for the trade. The workmanship is excellent and the edge is frighteningly sharp. 

    Honcho is an excellent company and I will be buying more items from them. Once you see the'll find it was worth the wait. Honcho gets an A+ from me.
